About My Firm

Palm Beach Gardens Family Lawyer

I am William Wallshein, founder of the West Palm Beach law firm William Wallshein, P.A. I began my legal career in 1984, working as a prosecutor in the state attorney's office in West Palm Beach. In 1990, I left that position and founded this law firm. At that time, the firm focused on two areas of law: criminal defense and family law. Today, that focus remains. My firm and my staff are dedicated to helping the people of South Florida when they need it most.

As a West Palm Beach divorce law attorney, I am enthusiastic and passionate about doing what is right for my clients and their children. My law firm is a place where you can come to discuss a problem openly, knowing that you are not being judged and that what you say is confidential. My firm has the resources needed to handle even the most complex and demanding divorce cases, including a reliable network of experts on whom to rely in building strong claims.

A Focus on Children

Whenever a client comes to me with a family law concern that involves a child, I always keep the interests of that child foremost in my mind. It is important to realize that the law and family court judges share this philosophy. It is easy for parents, in the midst of their own disagreements about child custody, to value their own interests over those of their kids. It does not make them bad parents; it just shows how stressful and emotional a family law issue can be.

I have found that once parents understand that their children's future is the primary concern, the parents are often able to work together. It does not mean they agree on everything, and it may not make a divorce any easier, but parents who can agree on nothing else usually agree that their relationship problems should not impact their children any more than absolutely necessary.

Personal Attention

My firm is not a place where people are viewed as case files. Where some lawyers pride themselves on speeding through as many cases as they can, I pride myself on delivering truly excellent client service. That means I am available to you — at my office, over the phone or via e-mail. It means I will not encourage you to take a settlement offer that is not in your best interest. And it means I will be by your side throughout every phase of your Florida family law matter.
